“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog it is here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, If the Lord wants us to , we will live and do this or that.” James 4:15,16 NLT
There was a morning fog outside when I drove into work today, and imagine when I go home it will not be there. It’s all gone that fast! That is what our lives are compared to in the book of James.
This past weekend I had a number of reflective events. My father-in-law celebrated his 60th birthday and it was amazing to hear about all of the people, places, and events that had impacted his life. I felt emotional all weekend every time I looked at my kids and my wife and just couldn’t believe the pace at which my life had flown by, but as I listened to my father-in-law speak about his memories, I was reminded of all of the incredible blessings that God stuffs into one brief life. So much good stuff in so little time! Life may fly by fast but it’s all of the blessings that only God can give that are blowing me away today! Blowing me away like a MORNING FOG!
